Hello Dolly (Bonjour Poupee)

Never cease to be amazed by the items I find in charity shops.  This elegant lady had a very elaborate 50s/60s interpretation of an Edwardian outfit.  She was made in France and had an unusual painted rubber composition face, the like of which I had never seen before.  Unfortunately it gave her complexion the appearance of an artiste from the seedier side of town and, for me, made her all the more interesting.
Out shopping tomorrow .... what treasures are awaiting?
